Great food, great service, great price. Clear to see why it is so popular, I recommend booking. Ate in the restaurant so can't comment on the bar meals but would bet they are good too.

Thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous lunch at The Rag today to celebrate my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. It speaks volumes for the popularity of this restaurant that the place was packed on a Thursday lunchtime, with almost every table occupied. I opted for the steak from the specials board which was cooked to perfection, and the lemon meringue delice - a perfectly... More

Visited for a business lunch, fortunately had booked a table, and just as well, as it quickly filled up. Prompt service, good quality food and at a reasonable price. My business colleague agreed. Will no doubt return to try evening menu.

Having eaten several times recently at the Rag and found the food to be very good we were disappointed last Saturday when we were shown to what we assumed at first was the Bar area. However it appeared to be a room being used in addition to the restaurant as all the tables were laid for dinner. However the chairs... More

Hello linrob. We were sorry to learn that you felt atmosphere was lacking in the annexe room. Tables are generally allocated in the order that reservations are received, or on the size of parties dining with us at any given time. Most of our bookings tend to be received 4 - 6 weeks in advance, particularly during peak periods such... More
